Asian stocks gained early on Friday, as hopes for a thaw in the U.S.-China trade conflict fed investor appetites for risk assets.

The Wall Street Journal reported on Thursday that U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin discussed lifting some or all tariffs imposed on Chinese imports and suggested offering a tariff rollback during trade discussions scheduled for Jan. 30.

Following Wall Street's lead, MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan added 0.25 percent at 494.91. The index has gained nearly 1 percent this week.
